“Unhelpful staff and average rooms!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2011

I only intended to stay 2 nights but after 1 night I had decided to find a new place. The staff were the most uncaring, unhelpful people in town which was really what got to me. A simple question about transport was such a difficult task for them to answer along with trying to convince me that I don't need to lock my door from the inside (no lock was there anyway) especially being a solo traveller as Dharamsala is "very safe'. The door didn't close fully moreover. At 600 rupees a night i expected a clean room with hot water and a little bit of privacy, though the room smelt like damp fermenting carpet and the windows faced other rooms so we could get to know other people's bowel movements quite intimately.

Room Tip: Lonely Planet has some good starting suggestions but this one didn't qualify in my books.

I stayed at Mount View Hotel from June 6 to June 8 2011 with my friend. They had different types of rooms and we chose the room with balcony. The view from our balcony was really beautiful and everyday we could see mountains from there. We could relax so much.
Our room was clean and quiet but unfortunatelly we couldn't get water every time. otherwise ok.

I recommend you to stay at this hotel.

I stayed for 3 nights at this hotel..

Positives:
Great location - just off the main part of town, but still with the great views
Views - We got a hillside view and it was amazing to wake up to in the morning
Service was very efficient and staff friendly.
Actual Hot water - not occasional!

Negatives:

Quality of shower varied day by day - generally low power.
Power sockets could be a health hazard - wires hanging out so not great if you want to charge your electrical items
Was a little pricey in comparison to some of its peers (we paid £26 a night for ours)

stayed here for 3 weeks in June @ RS500 per night in a spacious room. Hotel is clean and well maintained, staff friendly and helpful. Location is good as not too far down and not down mountains of steps either.

We had one of the most expensive rooms at the hotel. Fantastic views from the room and balcony over the valley. We paid 1600 for the room they had asked for 2000 which would have been far too much. Although the views are great the bedroom itself was ok, very spacious with windows on 3 sides and a TV. However the bathroom was really a disappointment. Old, a bit grubby with a leaky toilet and really could do with an update.
